Saturday nights WU V Victory was horrible quality so poor I could hardly workout who the players were. Through admittedly I had no issue on the Friday nights coverage.

Bruno should have iced that. Mind you McLaren fluffed an absolute soda last week took, maybe some of the players are still Rusty.

This has not been a high quality game so far.

As I said last week, we played no pre-season games so this is only the 2nd game for these players. They are all rusty as hell and the cohesion isn't there yet.
You guys also have a pretty brutal fixture coming up, no home games for 6 weeks or so.

I don't know the reasoning for that, but it's pretty rough for the Glory.

Who ******* cares. Take the joy out of the game with your microscopic replays if you want.
Isn't this thread about the coverage? Seems a massive oversight to not replay the one big moment of the game.

Fwiw VAR can get in the bin, happy for the goal to stand if the refs called it that way. I hate it and it shouldn't be in any sport.

Your point is a dumb one. Move on.
His point is a good one. It is the most contentious moment of the match and yet we get no clear (or even semi-clear) replay. That should not be happening in this day and age. You can't tell me they don't have at least one camera along the byline.

Considering an almost identical moment happened in a Hull game during the week with similar angles, I don't really think it can be expected that camera crews are sat on the by line for the one in a hundred games that have an incident needing review down that line. It's just bitching for the sake of it.

Maybe you can point that out in the Hull games coverage thread.

I didn't even ask for camera crews on the byline. Just one replay of the goal from the angles they had slowed down. Didn't even get that. That still shot I posted is from Twitter, paused and zoomed in. I only posted it to show it may have been contentious and maybe should've been discussed. They literally only mentioned it when they interviewed Jones (Glory keeper who said he thought it was out)

If u cant admit that's poor coverage u have some sort of invested interest somewhere

My point about bringing up that game is it's a common issue of not having a camera on that line, and not unique to Paramount, and not worth whinging about.

I just feel like the sooking about the coverage is tiresome when it's only been one week. Get over it. It's like people are looking for things to complain about.
